High School Go To Card Information
Monday, March 4, 2013 6:50 AM


Minneapolis Public Schools chose to use Metro Transit rather than school sponsored buses. Next year all MPS High school students will have Go-To Card eligibility based on the following criteria:

  • Students who live within the attendance zone and outside the school walk zone.
  • Students who qualify for free/reduced lunch that live inside the attendance zone.


Note: Students who attend a high school outside of their attendance zone or district are not transportation eligible and will not be eligible for a Go-To Card.



Depending on availability, students who live inside the walk zone, but do not qualify for the free card, bus cards will be for sale at a reduced rate (Check with C&C offices as listed below).


To qualify and receive Go-To Pass, contact C&C staff at school sites:

Southwest: 612-668-3064,

If you haven't been following the district's Go To Card decisions, following is a re-cap of reasons MPS chose public transportation:


The Go To pass allows students to use Metro Transit from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. 7 days a week

It offers students scheduling flexibility and access to a wide variety of learning opportunities in the community. 


Students have more opportunities to remain at school for academic programs, sports and other activities beyond the regular school day.


The program supports improved student attendance and retention. Student whereabouts may be tracked through Metro Transit’s website (metrotransit.org) with individual serial and tracking numbers on each card.
